The University's Confucius Institute is supporting an exhibition by nine prominent Chinese-Australian artists looking at the destructive power of war and the suffering it causes.
The Price of War exhibition can be seen at the Chinalink Gallery in Redfern until 25 August.

It features paintings, installations and video art by three Archibald Prize finalists, Adam Chang, Shen Jiawei, Chen Zhong; international artists Guan Wei, Shen Shaomin, and Zhou Xiaoping; female artists Amy Fu and Zu Tianli; and young emerging artist, Danny Chang.
The exhibition, curated by Tracey Liu, was opened by Professor John Hearn, the University's Deputy Vice-Chancellor International.

The Chinalink Gallery is open from noon to 5pm, Thursday to Saturday. For more information about the exhibition, visit the Confucius Institute website.
